Tarpanum—Ancient Vedic Offering of Homage
Tarpanum refers to an ancient Vedic offering of homage to the ancestors or Pitris. Traditionally rice, sesame seeds and water are offered at the new moon.
In Energy Healing it is possible to work outside the context of space and time and offer tarpanum in locations specifically structured to be most beneficial to the ancestors. Also, it is possible to select specific new moons which are auspiciously placed to best please each ancestor. Aspects of the collective body are ever available to make these offerings.
Normally a small amount of rice, sesame seeds and water are placed in the palm of the hand. This is offered to the moon when it is just a crescent or in full darkness. This ancient tradition from India can be performed with various mantras and can also be more elaborate.
The most auspicious moon is in September, usually. It is known as the time of the Pitris. A two or three week period in September is supposed to be especially auspicious for ancestral work.
Making the Offerings Energetically
Years ago, I was introduced to the idea of having the collective body intelligence make the offerings to ancestors energetically. From that level of being, which is outside the constraints of space and time, enhancements are possible. You don’t have to personally go outside and offer the materials. This part of the process is done for you energetically.
There are some new moons which are better for some ancestors than others. The collective body intelligence is able to select from the history of our world the most valuable time for any given ancestor and make the offering then. Even if the best time is 3,000 years ago, then the tarpanum, which brings blessings to your ancestors now, can be done at that time.
There are locations in the causal level of creation where the laws of nature are better for supporting the ancestors than others. Think of a house where rooms have specific functions. So, in the subtle fields of creation there are holy temples to the ancestors where the offering can be made with greatest impact and value for the ancestors.
So, when such an offering is required, I settle awareness into the collective level of my being and ask that the offering be made by the wise, priestly intelligences of my inner reality. And it is done from there, with maximum efficiency.
